Postfest XVI(Needfest 2011): Greyhawk- All Things Psionic!

Postfest XVI(Needfest 2011): Greyhawk- All Things Psionic! has now ended.

First, we have a recap of the original Postfest XVI(Needfest 2011)announcement:

Welcome to Postfest XVI(Needfest 2011): Greyhawk- All Things Psionic!

The topic of this Postfest is all about psionics in Greyhawk. Whether you use psionics or not, or only just a little bit, this Postfest is for every psionics aficionado out there, as well as for those wishing to explore the topic of psionics by writing an article that melds it with the own ideas on the Greyhawk setting. This is potentially a very broad topic, as the only parameters for an offering is that it has to do with psionics, and Greyhawk of course. Here is a list of just some of the possible topics that one could write on: a Greyhawk-specific psionic class/kit/prestige class/etc., a Greyhawk psionic NPC profile, Greyhawk psionic items, Greyhawk psionic powers, Greyhawk psionic monsters, a Greyhawk psionic creature enclave, or a Greyhawk psionic encounter. thsoe are all sort rules-intensive ideas, but you need not have rules at all, and could instead write an article on "Psionics in Greyhawk" or "Psionic Organizations of Greyhawk". Like I said, this topic is potentially HUGE! Happy

Here are some pointers for your submissions. While it is not a hard and fast rule, it is recommended that you cover something that has not been covered before, or that has been covered very little. Better still, introduce something new of your own! Please post what you will be writing about in this thread. Duplicate topics are okay, but we would like to keep it to a minimum. Feel free to make your submission game edition specific or not, super crunchy(i.e. lots o' rules) or not at all, or anywhere in between. Basically, write what YOU want to write.

Now, on to the format. Your submission should be in the realm of 1,000-4,000 words or so in length(more if fine; less not so much). That is not set in stone, but it is a good average length for any Article. As usual, be sure to not only Spell Check your article but read it over yourself, as Spell Check will catch many things, but seldom everything.

You may submit your article HERE. Be sure to write a short introductory teaser for your article and be sure to cite any sources you may have used as well. ***See the directions at the top of the Submissions page if you have any problems with the text not being accepted(this may happen if you use Internet Explorer). Even if the text is not accepted, *you must still submit your article title on the Submissions page*. When e-mailing an article to editors<at>canonfire<dot>com, be sure that your article is in simple Word form, contains no unsupported fonts, and with no formatting of any sort if possible(the simpler the better). This just makes things a whole lot easier for us to deal with, so please take the time to do this.

Make sure you put the title of your submission in the following format:

Postfest XVI(Needfest 2011): TITLE OF YOUR ARTICLE

***Submissions are due by December 22nd.

Thanks, and get to writing!

*Psychic Phenomena of the Flanaess
By Argon

"When we think of psychics many see mystic guru's or followers of Zuoken from the baklunish lands. Many of us never think of haunted locales or psychic impressions . . . left behind by those whom walked the Oerth before us.In this treatise you will be exposed to such psychic impressions and their affects on those who fall prey to them.
